Fantasy football wrap-up.

I played fantasy football again this season…

I really went overboard with the drafts back before the season started. I wound up with a whopping ten teams this season. That’s twice as many as last year. I ended up with a combined record of 84-46 for the season. The majority of my teams did pretty well with seven of my ten teams making the playoffs. And I ended up winning the championship in four of my ten leagues. My Giant Foam Fingers marched through the regular season undefeated. And they were one of my teams that won their championship, capping off a perfect season! I’ve never had a perfect season in fantasy football before…

Here’s my undefeated lineup from the final championship weekend…

My starting QB was Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson. So it was a little nerve-racking when the Ravens sat him for the final game of the season. Thankfully, I had Drew Breese stashed away for an emergency. Here are my other championship teams…

So once again, I can call myself a fantasy football champion. I think fantasy football is so much fun. It makes the football season really interesting and enjoyable, especially when you’re winning. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸ†β€οΈ

Three years ago.

Three years ago today, everyone was waking up to a world where the Chicago Cubs were finally World Series champions after 108 years…

GO CUBS GO! Thanks for the memories, Timehop! πŸ˜€πŸ¦•βšΎοΈβ€οΈ

That reminds me, if you ever get the opportunity to watch Let’s Play Two, it’s terrific…

Let’s Play Two is a documentary that chronicles Pearl Jam’s legendary performance at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music.

It’s just an incredible film that made me fall in love with Pearl Jam all over again. And it does an amazing job of telling the story of the years of heartbreak to the elation of Cubs fans and mystique of Wrigley Field and how it all intertwines with Pearl Jam playing Wrigley Field during Cubs magical run to their World Series championship. That’s a wicked long run-on sentence but it’s just a great documentary that I ended up buying and watch probably once a week.

And while we’re talking about baseball during the non-baseball season, peep this…

It’s all the Cincinnati Reds Big Red Machine team shown through baseball cards framed on a baseball diamond organized by player position. I’ve never really seen anything like this and I just thought it was also really pretty neat.

Fantasy baseball 2019 wrap-up.

Like I said a couple weeks ago, I had five teams competing in ESPN head-to-head points leagues. Three of my teams didn’t do so well. But two of my teams made the playoffs in the winner’s bracket. My Team Action AutoDraft finished 12-9 on the season…

They entered the playoffs as the three seed…

But they ended up losing in the first round. And finished in third…

My other team that made the playoffs in winners bracket was my Team Angry Bears…

Like I said before, I finally beat Yankees Camargo…

And after really sweating out the round 1 win, the championship was a bit easier…

And so I earned myself another fantasy baseball championship

Fantasy baseball is pretty dang fun.Β πŸ˜€βšΎοΈπŸ†β€οΈ

CHAMPIONS!

The USWNT are World Cup champions once again!

Fantasy basketball 2019.

I played NBA fantasy basketball again this year. I can’t find any mention of last season on our blog but I’m pretty sure I played fantasy basketball last season. But anyway. I played five teams this season. My Bouncy Balls went 17-3 during the regular season…

They made the playoff winners bracket as the two seed…

And in the championship matchup, I finally defeated an undefeated team…

My team Fire Balls were the three seed in the playoffs but lost by just eight points in the championship. Eight…

My Shot Clock Violators went undefeated through the 20-game regular season…

And they continued their unbeaten run in the first round of the playoffs…

And they claimed their championship by having a perfect season…

In every fantasy season, I always do an auto draft team. My Team Action Auto Draft team made the championship but got thumped in the final round…

My fifth team was called Sneaker Heads. They went 10-10 on the season but somehow entered the playoffs as the two seed. Figure that out. They lost in the first round of the playoffs but finished third. Fantasy basketball is pretty dang fun. πŸ˜€πŸ€πŸ†β€οΈ

For whatever reason this season, our league at work never kicked off. I’m not sure what happened there. But I still played five teams for just the fun of playing fantasy football.
I ended up with a combined record of 39-26 for the season. This season I named all of my teams some sort form of Bears…

My Firey Bears ended up in sixth place after going 5-8 during the regualr season. Team Auction AutoDraft ended in fifth at 7-6. My Growly Bears ended in fourth at 9-4 and Hungry Bears also ended in fourth after running riot in their league, thumping teams every week gto go 10-3 before completely collapsing in the championship semifinals.

My Blocky Bears went 8-5 during the regular season and were the only team I had that made the leauge championship matchup this season. And they were the only team I had that actually won their league…

So once again, I can call myself fantasy football champion. I think fantasy football is so much fun. It makes the football season really interesting and enjoyable, especially when you win. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸ†β€οΈ

FC Cincinnati versus Indy Eleven.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY SEVENTEEN! Tonight was the final USL regular-season home game for our FC Cincinnati. Their next home match will be the opening round of USL Cup 2018. And after that, they’ll move on to MLS.

FC|C can tie the current USL record for consecutive matches undefeated with a win or a draw tonight. With our soon to be collector’s item tickets in hand, we headed out to Nippert Stadium to watch our FC Cincy take on Indy Eleven…

I just missed the team photo…

HERE WE GO…

It was 1-0 FC|C at the half, and that means… SPRINKLES!

Sprinkles had a new friend but I didn’t catch what his name was…

AND THERE’S THE FULL-TIME WHISTLE! 3-0 to FC|C!

And FC Cincinnati tied the USL record for most consecutive matches without a defeat at 22 in a row! The players celebrated while a small stage was set up for an onfield post-match ceremony with the presentation of some silverware for our USL regular season champions…

WHAT A NIGHT! FC Cincinnati plays away to Nashville SC next Saturday in the final match of the regular season. As regular season champions, FC Cincinnati gets home-field advantage throughout USL Cup 2018. Their first playoff match will be on Saturday, October 20th right here at Nippert Stadium.Β πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ†β€οΈ

Fantasy football wrap-up.

I completely forgot to do a blog post about the culmination of my fantasy football season. I wrote an update after weekΒ 5 of the season, and another after week 10. But I never wrote one wrapping up the finish of my season. So here we go…

36496598773_1944734904_o

My seven teams went a combined 65-28. I made the playoffs in every league except my league at work, and that was the one that mattered most. In my work league, I finished a disappointing sixth out of twelve teams with a record of 10-5. In the other six leagues, I had a fourth-place finish, three third-place, one second-place and one championship win. In the league where I won my one championship, I was 11-2 but I was 7-6 in the league where I finished second. Figure that one out. It was another fun season of fantasy football.Β πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸ†β€οΈ

Fantasy Football Champion!

Fantasy Football Champion is something that I am not this year. I had six fantasy football teams. I finished the season with a combined 56-24 record. Four of my six teams finished the regular season in first place. The fifth team finished in fifth place, just outside of the playoffs. My big-money team at work finished the regular season in third. All four of my first-place teams made their championship finals, and that’s where it all went downhill. Rather quickly. Between injuries and teams not playing their starters, my lineups were decimated and I got thumped in all four championship games. Β I ended up with four second-place finishers, one sixth-place team and a fourth-placed finish at work. It was unfortunate that I couldn’t win at least one of those four finals. But it sure did make for another really fun football season. πŸ™‚

Unbelievable.

108 years, erased during one of the best baseball games I’ve ever seen.
Congratulations, Cubbies! World Series Champions at long last.

Simply unbelievable. Well done. βšΎπŸ˜’πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚
